    Hello and Welcome to the third season of Ellwed Talks – the first podcast about destination weddings in Greece! My name is Sanya, the founder of Ellwed magazine and I will be your host today. Join me in this new season where we talk with Gretchen Culver.

    In 2020, she opened the doors to Minne Weddings, a brand that provides stylish and affordable micro-weddings, as a way to meet her clients’ evolving demands for small-but-significant celebrations. Her knack for identifying client pain points and solving problems has propelled Minne Weddings to the top of her market.

    Throughout her career, Gretchen’s community helped to lift her up for success and, with gratitude for the support, she remains committed to serving those around her. With almost two decades in the industry, Gretchen has learned countless lessons as an event entrepreneur and is dedicated to sharing those insights with event pros that are still early in their journey.

    Her affinity for empowering female entrepreneurs led her to launch Culver Creative, where she provides coaching and consulting services for creative professionals. She also serves as a Sage Coach for Be Sage Consulting, with a special focus on small weddings as a sustainable revenue stream.

    Named one of the “30 Under 40 to Watch” by Special Events and recognized as a top planner by BRIDES and Martha Stewart Weddings, Gretchen’s award-winning work has been featured in magazines, online, and on television.

    019 - A Guide to Intimate Eco-conscious Destination Weddings with Opi Kaur

    In this episode of Ellwed Talks we talk about Intimate Eco-conscious Destination Weddings with Opi Kaur of Open the Door Events.

    This topic is very dear to my heart as I am a strong believer in minimizing our footprint wherever we can. I am glad to have this chant with Opi, the founder of Open the Door Events, a sustainable event designer based in Andalusia, Spain.

    Open the Door was founded in late 2014. Opi finds that her long lasting experience from other sectors like travelling, books, nature and people in her life are the important pillars of her brand.

    She creates intimate events in harmony with nature. Although, her style is laid-back, there is an effortless elegance that ties her work together. Every detail and vendor that goes into designing an eco-conscious wedding is thoughtfully considered to ensure their ethos of bringing stunning eco conscious events to life, is being honoured.

    They have been featured on international wedding blogs on numerous occasions such as: Green Wedding Shoes, Junebug Weddings, Bridal Musings, Rock my Wedding, Nouba, Martha Stewart, Together Journal, Festival Brides, White magazine and in 2020 they were also interviewed by Vogue on eco conscious weddings.

    In this episode we get to know Opi and her story of becoming a sustainable event designer. She will explain what it means to haven an eco-conscious wedding and where to start, in this guide to Intimate eco-conscious destination weddings.
